photos of sleeping arrangements in SWB?

Anyone out there with photos of some sort of temporary sleeping bunk in a 88 or 90? I've got several ideas running through my head but don't want to pass up on the ingeniuity (and lessons learned) of others in this forum.

I'd rig up a hammock from the roll cage.....if some one gives me a d-90, I'd gladly figure something out.

There are a couple of "solutions" on the d-90.com site under "custom mods" and they're labelled "Sleep & Store"

I don't know about inside, but my roof rack works!

I spend a lot of time sleeping underneath the trucks. With a creeper or an indian blanket.

Hope that helps. Jack Black makes most sleeping arangements comfy.

I built a fold-up bed that ran from across the PS rear fender well & over the 'laid forward' passenger seat & the center console. It worked well ... especially when used in the hardtop on those cold mornings camping when I'd just start the car & crank up the heat from my sleeping bag before getting out of bed. Makes those sub-freezing mornings a bit less of a shock to the system .

I don't think I've got any pics, though....

Here is a similar setup from a write up by David Gomes like Troy was describing:

I tried running a hammock from one corner of the cage to the other and it sucked. Horribly. There just isnt' enough room in there to stretch a hammock out enough that it's long enough. Stick with a tent.

Well the one shown on D-90.com is 6'5" long, which one would think would be OK for most. If you are taller than that, I pity you for trying to own a D90.....

I've wondered about making something to support the hammock, like something mounted to the reciever in the rear bumper. Might give you the added distance to stretch out the hammock to your liking(might not). Rig up some mosquito netting to put over the open edge...and you are all set.
Could even work with a old military cott. Have the cott itself hang from chords or chains of some time. Assemble when needed.

Yah, but that's a flat surface -- hammocks aren't. I'm not even close to 6'5" (by a lot) and with enough sag in the hammock that it could fit in the truck, I felt like my spine was at a right angle.

So don't use a hammock.

Try a swag, if you can get them over there.
